‘Israel should cancel security arrangements with PA’

Likud MK Danny Danon calls for Israel to dissolve its security coordination with the Palestinian Authority.

The recently fired deputy defense minister writes in an op-ed for Foreign Policy: “Those among us who naively thought we could outsource the security and safety of our citizens to the Palestinian Authority should now understand that this was a dangerous gambit. While we will continue to encourage the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria to take responsibility for their day-to-day civilian lives, we can no longer allow the PA even the smallest amount of autonomy when it comes to anti-terror efforts. Only by allowing the Israel Defense Forces and our other security services to operate freely in every corner of Judea and Samaria will we be able ensure that all the residents of this land receive the level of security they deserve.”
